Crimp receptacles provide reliable and uniform termination in circuit environments. They ensure resistance to vibration and corrosion, providing good tensile strength. They preclude the need for electrical safety interlocks or special protective shields to help prevent shock hazards. The correct crimp tool will help provide an easy application for reliable electrical performance.
Crimp receptacles are mainly used in the appliance and automotive industries. They are also widely used in machinery, electrical equipment and home appliances, such as electric ranges, washers and dryers.
There are two main types of crimp receptacle. Insulated crimp receptacles can be used to prevent shock and electrical short circuits from exposed leads. They offer high stability under harsh environmental conditions in industrial applications, keeping greases and oils away from the electrical connection.
Uninsulated crimp receptacles provide the greatest variety of uses where special features are not required and allow visual inspection, which is useful in preventing outages and accidents that can be caused by wear and internal degradation.
